Summer grilling season is here. Don’t forget, you could also grill excellent fruit. In this guide, I will explain how to cut pineapple for grilling if you’re in the supermarket and wondering which pineapple is the ripest.
Find the Ripe Pineapple
Here’s an easy and quick tip. Grab one of the sprigs on top of the pineapple in the grocery store, give it a little tug if it pulls out quickly, that’s a ripe pineapple. If it gives you a little bit of a problem, move on to the next one so to get started.
Best Way to Cut a Pineapple
You want to take your pineapple, place it on its side, cut the top of the bottom off then we’ll get an upright, and we’ll peel down the sides.
Once you got the pineapple all cleaned up, you’re almost ready to eat. What I suggest to get rid of the core and then cut this into wedges to get them on to the grill.
Remove The Pineapple Core
First, you’ll take your pineapple, and you’ll cut it precisely in half. Lay it down and cut it in half again. Once you’ve cut it in half-turn it to the side, the core is visible through the middle.
Bring your knife in at an angle and simply cut it away. Now that the core is gone, we can get these wedges right onto the grill; it’s always important to remember that most fruits will grill quickly.
A pineapple only needs to go on the grill about three to five minutes per side. All you’re really looking for is some excellent grill marks and pull the sugar to begin to caramelize. Once you’ve grilled your pineapple, there are lots of great ways to work with it.
You can slice this up and eat it right away.
